I thought about putting a joke about Martin Luther in your card until I realised you probably don't remember who he was. Maybe you'll meet him when you see her next.

Green Eyes and Valentines

FREE WRITING

5
Hey Grandpa
Happy 95th?
I know I didn't write
as much in your card as I should've
But I ran out of space
I wanted to write big so you could read it
Hey Grandpa,
Can you still read?
We only really met eyes on Christmas Eve
And exchanged a shaky smile
You confused me for my mother
She was all grown up, you knew,
But she only had the two blonde daughters,
One only in elementary school
And the other in only diapers-
This couldn't have been either
 Hey Grandpa
It's been almost a year
Since she died
I've been told you were a romantic,
(Born on Valentine's, what could anyone expect?)
I guess I inherited more than just green eyes from you
She wasn't well, when she died,
You know that, right?
Hey Grandpa?

    This is rather bittersweet...but mostly sweet. I love the simple emotion in it.
